She’d been there before
in a time now past,
and caring, bleak
The future daunting,
taunting twisted tales
in the soul of her eyes.
Help me, she pleaded.
Let there be light
in these dark days
My hands are here for you
to use, as my soles
tread this sacred land.
And, my mind learns
from the clues
our ancestors left waiting
To reveal to her
when the time was
divine for the tryst
stumbled up mountains
and down again.
Faltering she wavered
waiting until the time
had come, as ordained
To stake her claim
She knew now
things were different
A phoenix rising
Tears shed for the people,
To cleanse the pain,
to wash away the lies
and the longing.
Space, created for love
hope of better days to come
Peace replaced weariness
and once again she rose,
A warrior born to shine.
To remove the shadows
Where fear once lived.
I just found this among lots of draft blogs. I could probably add something about The Three Little Pigs but for the sake of posterity I’ll leave it as it was written.
Let us not rush into any more wars,
Not on the word of a liar,
If only his nose grew like little Pinocchio,
Or his pants really did catch on fire.
He is an actor that has learned his trade,
In the Skull and Crossbones secret ways.
He plays with false flags,
As he drives around in jags
Acting like we’re all toys
Here for the joy of the Eton boys
To die in their wars
While inflicting more sores
In a world already so deeply scarred
Minds so terribly marred
Step back from the madness we see
It’s the only way clearly to see
We’ve been programmed with the language of lies
Terror’s been spread in their well acted sighs
Contagious the disease has run wild
Infecting the future of every child
Now they’re calling for more war?
As Scotland’s showing Westminster the door
We ain’t playing your rules,
You blood-thirsty fools
The extremists are your creation,
A result of bombing a nation
Well that and your skulduggery
And out and out thuggery
You think we don’t know
How you write the full script
Then play it over and over in our minds
Our emotions heightened to blind
The tears we have cried at the times you have lied
Have left a gift in their place,
With clarity we looked at the news,
No longer buying your views
Stop acting like we have no choice
And start listening as we speak with one voice
We will not be manipulated any more,
We will no longer fight in your wars
Gone are the ways of the past,
Our true voice set free at last
Peace the proclamation as we move forward with glee,
Reclaiming our sovereignty, we set ourselves free
Into a future at one with the World
Educating and empowering the boys and the girls.
Creating a future that shines a bright light,
On leading with love instead of dominating with might
We’re so close now Scotland, and the death throes are messy
And Cameron may be a bully but he’s also a big jessie!!
He’ll pull out every tool he can find to even the field
But it’s harvest time now and it’s time to yield
The future they planned is ours for the taking.
A future at peace is one we’ll be making
Decommissioning Trident with our courageous hearts
Showing the world we can have a fresh start
No longer tied to the bondage of past
Finally from the chains we’ve broke free at last
Imagining the future, drawing it close
Energising the vision, we want to see most.
Vote YES on the 18th September,
A day future generations will always remember.
Our World has gone quite mad, yet somehow I stay sane.
Even as I bear witness to all this misery and pain.
My heart it feels so heavy with the antics of the mind.
Wondering what happened that stopped us being kind.
Religion, countries, separation, it’s all been manufactured,
Leaving cuts and bruises and a mind that’s badly fractured.
The illusion’s fell away and many, many see,
That everything’s not simple as it appears to be.
The answers lie inside us, but somehow I don’t know why,
Many turn away as they hear their family cry.
The ocean waves are noisy as Mother Earth roars.
It is time to heal from all our pains and sores.
The darkness is dense now and the one saving grace,
Is that we can change it when these shadows we face.
It’s best when the light’s on from within.
Then we heal the World by sharing a grin.
The one breath of life, is what we all share.
So maybe it’s time we all start to care.
The fate of our future lies in our hands.
So let us lift our hearts, and not idly stand.
War is not the answer it never was,
A holy disaster with only one cause.
To generate income for the wealthy few.
Who’d rather invest in killing instead of you?
We are the miracle, so what are we waiting for?
Let’s get together and say NO MORE WAR!!
Peace is the way, the truth and the light,
Not by flexing our muscles and acting with might.
Stop for a moment, and breathe nice and deep.
And then finally we may awake from this sleep.
Stop threatening our future, with your silly games.
All your menacing antics, you really should be ashamed.
Call yourself men, I’ll tell you this.
You are all behaving like silly little kids.
There are not toy soldiers, or rubber bullets you aim.
All for some perceived power and a little fame.
The patriarchs time is over, it’s time for dominance to end.
And women are at the ready to help our World mend.
It is time for balance, for women to have a voice.
So if you’d like to shut up now, I’ve had enough if your unruly noise.
Your greed it insults me as you do this in my name.
And even though I renounced you, you are still causing me such pain.
My heart aches for my family all around the World,
For all the beautiful children, the innocent boys and girls.
It’s time to end the madness and let sanity prevail.
The only way I see is to put the leaders in jail.
Leaders should be the example of what we want to see,
Not bullies, liars and cheats full of hypocrisy.
I don’t want your protection if it looks like this,
I’d rather live in peace and eternal bliss.
Every single human, no matter where they are.
Have the potential within to be the brightest star.
Let us spend our money on education and working with the Earth,
Helping people see exactly what they’re worth.
War is a psychopath’s dream
The craziest money making machine.
It creates damaged people who recreate more chaos,
Instead let’s find a way to reach homeostasis.
A body of cells working together as one,
Celebrating that we share the same sun.
Our life’s are a blessing, it really is so.
So let’s stop this madness and get on with the show.
